Woodland Springs offers glamping in camping pods exclusively for Adults in the Dartmoor National Park, Devon. Surrounded by farm and woodland we are in a tranquil setting in the hamlet of Venton near Chagford and Dartmoor is on your doorstep.
Our natural setting encourages wildlife and you will see many species of birds as well as rabbits, if you are very lucky you may also get to see deer, stoats and foxes. Our park changes greatly throughout the year so make the most of us being open all year. You could even visit for Christmas and New Year.
The toilet blocks have free hot water and showers and is also centrally heated during the colder months. We welcome dogs and other pets, we also have Day Kennels for hire should you want to go somewhere you cannot take the dogs. You can walk out in the lanes behind Woodland Springs or exercise them in our dog exercise field where they can be exercised off the lead.
On site we have a small shop that sells the bare essentials including wine and local ciders and beers. We bake fresh bread to order in the morning. Our Information point features a freezer as well as a coffee machine that grinds coffee from the bean.
